There are so many emotions, I don’t even know where to start! I am so behind on editing so many photos but I had to take a minute to share these photos from our twins first birthday. I cannot believe it’s been a year. I really can’t! I still remember finding out we were going to have twins and being like “no way, this isn’t real”. Well it’s real and it’s been a year!
I never dreamed I could be this happy. All the things that seemed to impossibly hard in the beginning are distant memories now. I joined a twin mom group and I am surrounded by such a great support system. Brad & I are truly so blessed. Vera and Violet have made me become a way more patient person. And really have made me believe I can do anything. I still struggle with so many things as a mom, but my babies are all so worth it. I’d like to keep rambling on about all the feels but I need to share these photos and get back to my grind! 😉
We did a donut themed birthday party in honor of their birthday being National Donut Day! And I need to give a huge shout out to Wixon Woodcraft for the toy they handcrafted for the girls. They really brought my ideas to life and I encourage all my friends with little ones to check them out for some AH-MAZING wooden toys. I may just do a whole separate post on their toys in the future, thats how much I LOVE them.
The donut stand was also handmade by Wixon Woodcraft! ❤
This beauty right here was my vision, and Laura & her husband made it come alive! It’s a wooden donut stacker toy, and I am obsessed with it! It’s one of a kind and thats even better! I’m telling you, if you want local, hand crafted, wooden toys for your littles, you need to check them out.
My second shout out goes to my mom of course, for making my cake vision come to life! I sent a snap chat drawing of what I wanted, and together (kinda) we made it happen!
The shoes picture below were painted by me! I’m pretty craft when I put my mind to it. I also made the donut garland with the help of my amazing sister! Everything else was amazon and target, lol.
We couldn’t manage to get a good family photo so these will have to do. The girls outfits are hard to see but they were also made by a local mom and I will be doing a photoshoot with them in them again! Nikki’s Easy shop is https://www.etsy.com/shop/DapperAF?ref=shop_sugg check her out for some cute clothes!!
We also did a donut smash cake shoot because duh.
I couldn’t not take some photos of Nora enjoying a donut with this backdrop. I mean come on! This family obviously loves donuts.
